About This Performance
Our Creative Chair leads a provocative program including nearly lost post-minimalist music by Julius Eastman, the African-American composer who died homeless at 49. Salvatore Martirano’s best-known work – L’s G.A. (Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address) for gas-masked politico, helium bomb, two-channel tape recorder, etc. – was widely performed in the ’60s and ’70s. Premieres from Young and McIntosh lead off.
